Ride 4 Ronald 2011

Filed under: Florida News,Orlando Events |

The second annual ride featuring 638 bicycle riders was held in Orlando this morning. The start and end of the ride was at the Ronald McDonald House on the campus of Florida Hospital for Children and it raised over $100,000 for the charity. More than 1500 families use the home as a home away from home while their children are in the hospital.

Riders get to choose from several different rides as there are 30 miles, 62 miles and then 100 mile routes with the aim of raising as much money for Ronald McDonald House as they can. The aim of the charity is to provide a “home away from home” for families with seriously ill or injured children who are being treated at local hospitals and medical facilities. There are two Ronald McDonald Houses in Orlando; one is located on the campus of Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children and the other is on the campus of Arnold Palmer Medical Center.

More than 15,000 have stayed at the two Ronald McDonald House locations in Orlando since opening the first phase of the first House in December 1996. Those families have represented 51 countries, 48 states and 62 Florida counties. It’s a great charity and so nice to see it so well supported.
